Wedding Bells #16 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
Wedding Bells v1 #16, 1956 - Beautiful people at a formal party are the subjects of this typical Matt Baker cover. A man acknowledges his date's preference over him, but doesn't seem disturbed by it. The artist avoids filling much of the background, opting instead for more party participants. Is the mirror in the left intended as a metaphor? Compositionally, I like how Baker points the redhead's arm toward the her heart's desire. Other artists in this issue include Chuck Cuidera. This is number 2 of 3 Wedding Bells issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Wedding Bells issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
